Article: Thanks to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the entire country is listening.

https://www.alternet.org/2019/02/thanks-to-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-the-entire-country-is-listening/


snip of article:

Whatever Congress may do in the weeks and months to come, the introduction of the “Green New Deal” resolution is a major victory for climate advocates and its principal sponsors, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass. For the first time in years — perhaps for the first time ever — millions of Americans are not only fretting about the planet’s imperiled future but also organizing behind a visionary approach to its salvation.

Lacking in legislative details, this bill wasn’t drawn to address every aspect of climate policy or all of the economic changes required to reduce carbon emissions to zero within 10 years, its ambitious goal. The Green New Deal is an idea, designed to explode the myth that environmental progress must reduce economic growth and destroy jobs — as corporate propaganda has insisted for decades. Instead, this clean-energy transition promises full employment at living wages, universal health care and improved educational opportunity.



We need more like her. I hope all those repigs choke on that oil, esp. Putin too.

2. I'm amazed by her ability to set the narrative

 

I'm used to 40+ years of the media ignoring Democrats, with perhaps the exception of Obama and Bill Clinton during their first Presidential campaigns.
